What a change!

It started last night with the wind getting stronger from the north, then an increasing amount of snowfall. Around 3 am (the sound of the plows once again woke me up to get my snow clearing going), there was a lot of lightning and thunder. Low down, too (a lot of times there's a flash of lightning, a long wait, and then deep, distant rolling thunder over the mountains). Flash and bang and lots of graupel (soft hail) falling.

The rate of fall has actually picked up here, with the snow changing to a little nicer, more crystally shapes. It is pretty heavy snow, but it is fresh snow, and enough to add to the snowpack (my total snowpack pole is now back to nearly 270cm, or about the same as the resorts are reporting). Could be a little tricky on some steep slopes, with wet, compact snow below and fresh, heavy on top, so be a bit careful outside the ski area.
